    For those who don't know, the site abetterrouteplanner.com is an outstanding resource for planning road trips in Teslas.

    They currently have a lack of data for Model 3 (consumption vs speed and supercharging speeds). The way we can help correct this is by signing up for an account, attaching your Tesla account credentials, and most importantly running the site on your phone's browser at all times while driving and during the entirety of your supercharging sessions. The site only collects data when the webpage is active (no vampire drain when not using the site). This will greatly help the community understand the Model 3's performance characteristics.

    The timing is especially important as we transition from one season to another since we can now collect a wide swath of temperature data.

    We're all nerds here, so I'm hoping that the prospect of sweet sweet data is enough to encourage participation.

    If you have a daily commute, you may consider offsetting the speed limit by a different value each day. If the limit is 65 mph, do 66, 67, 68, 69 mph to help give more detailed granulation to the data.

    If you haven't used A Better Routeplanner, I've found it to be an excellent tool during road trips in my S. I'll be sure to do what I can to contribute when my 3 is delivered.

    Always loved this site, really would love an app version, but - do they need the vehicle login details? Hmm.

    Login is required only to contribute data.

    Login also allows the app to know car status -- current battery status, and whether it's charging or discharging. Running it on a phone would mean that location data doesn't have to come from the car, but it pulls that information from the browser in the S.

    I'm fearful of providing vehicle login to third parties. I wish there were two levels of vehicle credentials: one that permitted full access and control (i.e., what we have now) and one that only authorizes telemetry.
